I thought I should try some of the local cuisine and from what I had heard the sardines were the locals favourite dish. Although it was out of season as they are usually at their best during the summer months, the sardines I had at this restaurant were delicious. They came with boiled potatoes. It was very quiet with only one other table being occupied.
Favorite Dish: THE SARDINES WERE DELICIOUS

McDonalds is in a good position near the Jardim Manuel Bivar, opposite the Marina. The service is quick and efficient and the staff all spoke English which helped me with my ordering. They didn’t sell milkshakes but they did have Lipton’s iced tea.
Favorite Dish: A BIG MAC

The café Castello is in a marvoulous position in the old town of Faro. The window seats look out on the Rio Formosa. I just had a café galao (latte) but there were other people eating delicious looking sandwiches. The Castello is also a music venue with an outdoor stage, but I think they only have entertainment in the summer months when I presume Faro is teeming with tourists.
OPENS DAILY 10.00-4.30

This nice little café was not far from my hotel and just around the corner from the supermarket. The girl that served me although her English wasn’t too good she was very friendly and helpful. I ordered a cheese and ham toastie and a café galao (latte) and sat down to eat next to a big screen TV. The toastie was delicious and I enjoyed watching the TV even though I didn’t have a clue what was going on.
Favorite Dish: Cheese and ham toastie

The coffee at Costa, Faro airport, was the same blend with all the same procedures and all of the cakes were as over here in the UK. They had extra items available such as chocolate bars and a draught beer.
Favorite Dish: The latte tasted just as good.

This sports bar is on the avenue 5th of October in Faro.it is just opposite the Law courts. I went here a couple of times as they sold a delicious café galao (latte) as well as beer and spirits. The walls were plastered with scarves and banners of football clubs from around Europe. There were a few English teams scarves, Man united, Man city, Derby county and Chelsea among others unfortunately no Leeds United (I will take them one next time I go). Two large TV screens played football matches. The couple of times I visited they showed a Portugese match and an English one (Man U v QPR).
Favorite Dish: I had a latte but everybody else were drinking beer.

Chelsea café had delicious cakes and pastries baked on the premises. I had a café galao (pronounced café galo) which is the same as a latte. During my visit (not all at the same time) I tried a donut simples, éclair, regionas (little almond cake in the shape of a melon) and a fruit tart, all were delicious and although the café/shop was quite small it got very busy.
It was also very cheap. A cafe galao was 1 euro and cakes were all about 1 euro (thats why I had so many of them)
Favorite Dish: ALL OF THEM

Faro gets pretty empty in the evenings, because many tourists only visit the city on daytrips from the beach resorts along the Algarve. So it can be a bit difficult to find a restaurant where at least a few people were eating dinner.
As I had already enjoyed many Portuguese meals during my Lisbon days I felt like I should get myself just a pizza for dinner. I headed to Restaurante Chelsea which is one of the tourist places in the pedestrianised shopping area. They serve all sorts of Portuguese meals and also pizza.
To be honest, I can't really recommend this place: The pizza was small and not very tasty. Apart from that the waiter tried to charge me for the cover and bread which I hadn't even eaten.

We had dinner in the esplanade, noticing the easy shown by the owner getting space - all the tables were occupied, but, since we didn't want to eat inside (no one wanted, in that hot night) he quickly moved a couple of tables and a few chairs outside to sit us.
The situation repeated with more groups, until there were no more tables inside, and the esplanade almost the double of the original size.
The service was very slow; a few costumers near us complained, and we got the explanation - the computer was crashing often. We were forced to wait until midnight for someone arriving by bus, and the problem didn't bother us too much.
The food was very good. We were five, choose five different dishes, and everybody appreciated his choice. The price was also acceptable.

Unfortunately I didn't find a restaurant where I had a very good lunch or dinner in Faro. Adega Nortenha was one of the best places I ate in the town.
The restaurant is a very simple place and the food was good. Here they serve various kinds of fish and meat.
Favorite Dish: I liked very much their tuna steak with vegetables.
